Six Greenpeace activists climbed the chimney of the Kingsnorth coal plant to protest the building of a second unit and they then attempted to paint the side of the tower but were unable to finish. Upon coming down they were promptly arrested and tried for criminal damage. They managed to win their case by proving that shutting down a coal plant for 24 hours causes less damage than keeping one open.
